What’s Your Cake Style?

White and Crystal Cake

Once upon a time, two pastry chefs fell in love, decided to get married, and opted to spend more on the cake than her dress. (See that cake over there?  Made by the wonderful Sherri Meyers of The Pastry Studio in Daytona Beach?  She made my cake, too.  Alas.  Before the days of great digital photography.)

True story.  I know, because I was there.

What's my point, you ask?  Well, for some couples, a wedding cake is just another detail to cross off the mile-long to do list.  For these folks, having Aunt Bessie bake her famous sheet cake for free, or heading down to the local supermarket…well, that's fine.  (And Aunt Bessie may be Read More


Pink Minnie Mouse Cake

Pink Minnie Mouse Cake

When I saw this cute-as-a-button Minnie Mouse-inspired birthday cake, I squealed like a little girl.  This was cuter than cute.  There’s not a level of cute that’s been invented yet that does it justice.

Sure, I know.  It’s a first birthday cake.  But I live in the land of the Mouse, y’all.  So you can just imagine the copious number of Disney fangirls I know.  I’m totally serious.  They would LOVE this as a wedding cake, or for their bridesmaid luncheon.

There’s somethings always so…just so about Read More


Love Birds and Succulents Wedding Cake


Oh, but the summer vibe just keeps on getting summerier.  That’s a word, right?

So, today’s cake isn’t so much about the cake itself – don’t be hatin’ on me ’cause it came from Publix Supermarket – but it is about the beautiful way that the bride and groom decided to dress it up with so many darling details.

The cake is the perfect blank slate: white fondant with big, exaggerated, pearl trim.  But what really caught my eye were the succulents trimming the cake (LOVE THEM), as well as the adorable – I mean, CRAZY adorable! – lovebirds nesting on top.  The final touch is the Read More


Teal Swarovski Crystals and Flowers Wedding Cake

Beautiful Cake by The Pastry Studio...Who Happened to Bake My Cake, Too!

Sometimes you just need a bit of flair to bring a cake to perfection. Perhaps some feathers or a touch of pink or you can add fabulous teal Swarovski crystals.

Today’s cake is by the lovely and talented team at The Pastry Studio in Daytona Beach, Florida. If you haven’t seen any of their cakes then check out this Retro Bubble Cake, or this incredible Nutcracker-Inspired Cake.

The intricate detailing on this cake if perfection! The hand made sugar-paste flowers and the beautiful scrolling are gorgeous. And I love how they added a little bling in the form of teal Swarovski crystals. It’s a much lighter touch than all of the rhinestone trim that we saw last year, and frankly, I love it!  It adds a little pop of color that complements the all white perfectly, and it’s a luxurious look without going overboard.

Pink and Brown Square Wedding Cake with Scrolls

Pink and Brown Square Cake

It’s the simple touches that really set apart good from fantastic, right?  Anna Hightower from Central Florida’s Anna Cakes totally gets that.

I saw this cake for the first time on Twitter, when Anna sent me a pic.  I immediately fell in love!  I mean, pink and brown are such a fantastic color combo anyway, but then I took in the different design elements – the perfectly piped scrolls, the top layer that was round for whimsy, the brooch and the picture-perfect initial cake topper – they all came together to make a beautiful cake.  But truly, what sets it apart for me is the Read More


Gator Cake Topper

Gator Cake Topper

So…full disclosure:  I am not so much a Florida Gators fan, even though I live right here in Gator Country.  However, when in Rome, yes?

Aren’t these darling?  These Gator cake toppers pay homage to the University of Florida mascots – and maybe the alligator that lives in your Read More


Copper and Chocolate Wedding Cake

Copper and Chocolate Wedding Cake

Omistars in heaven above.

Really – why do we think that chocolate should be relegated to the groom’s cake?  Let’s be honest.  The brides do all the work.  The brides starve and sweat their brains out in exercise classes to fit into that dress, and it’s the brides who avoid all those “illegal” foods leading up to the wedding so that they are their blushing, rosy perfect selves.

So seriously…WHO deserves chocolate at that wedding reception MORE THAN THE BRIDE?

And if our fair bride will be indulging in this Read More


Hand-Painted Love Birds Cake

bird wedding cake

It’s one thing to see a cake which features details that prove that the cake artist is well-versed in the culinary arts.  But it’s quite another when the baker also proves that she is an artist in the true sense of the word.  Today’s featured cake shows just such a gift.  We actually linked to this beautiful hand-painted cake by Dream Day Cakes of Gainesville, Florida, in our Let Them Eat Cake Round-Up last May, but it’s so special, we thought it deserved its own post.

Notice the details:  both the tree on the bottom tier, as well as the branch that the bird cake toppers are “perched” on, were handpiped meticulously by baker and cake artist Yeni Monroy.  Fred Read More
